I have a friend (you know who you are) who is the Queen of Thrifting. The photos she sends me of her finds are ridiculous. Seriously. Mini pleather turquoise sofa for her boy's bedroom is just one example.
I don't get out to Goodwill™ very often. To find time on my own to wander around a place like that is not slated into my days. Which I am very sad about. I love wandering around a thrift store. But you need time and patience and no children. Or very well behaved children. Plus the Goodwill closest to me is... uhm... small and well, I think they get what all the other Goodwill's in the area don't want. Oh and I need to drive to it.
But there were some specific things that I knew would be best found at Goodwill™ so I booked time to go on my own.
While there I popped into the kids section and found this! I was so excited. These things are not cheap. I wanted to get a wall mount one like at the doc's office and you know what? They're like $300 bucks! Okay the floor ones are not so expensive but still.
Score one for me!

Then I found this in the glass case at the front.

And then this. We already have a set but a second could be used for some DIY thing, I'm sure.

Do you get 'thrifty'?
